Ramjet basic operation
RAMJET BASIC OPERATION

Fuel

injectors

  • Ramjet has no moving parts

  • Achieves compression of intake air by forward speed of vehicle

  • Air entering the intake of a supersonic aircraft is slowed by aerodynamic diffusion created by the inlet and diffuser to low velocities

  • Expansion of hot gases after fuel injection and combustion accelerates exhaust air to a velocity higher than that at inlet and creates positive thrust


Key results ramjet
KEY RESULTS: RAMJET

  • Begin with non-dimensional thrust equation, or specific thrust

  • Ratio of exit to inlet velocity expressed as ratio of Mach numbers and static temperatures. Recall that for a Ramjet Me=M0

  • Ramjet specific thrust depends on temperature ratio across burner, tb

    • Compare with H&P EQ. (5.27)

  • Energy balance across burner

  • Expression for fuel flow rate for certain temperature rise of incoming mass flow and fuel energy, h

  • Useful propulsion metrics

    • Specific impulse, thrust specific fuel consumption, and overall efficiency


What did we learn
WHAT DID WE LEARN?

  • Figure 5.9 from Hill and Peterson: Ramjet performance parameters vs. flight Mach number

  • Specific thrust has peak value for set Tmax and Ta

  • Specific thrust increases as maximum allowable combustor exit temperature increases

  • Specific fuel consumption decreases with increasing flight Mach number


What did we learn1
WHAT DID WE LEARN?

  • Figure 5.10 from Hill and Peterson: Ramjet performance parameters vs. flight Mach number

  • Specific thrust has peak value for set Tmax and Ta. Peak is around Mach 2.5

  • Propulsive, thermal and overall efficiencies increase continually with increasing Flight Mach number

Some details on bomarc missile
SOME DETAILS ON BOMARC MISSILE

  • Flight testing started in 1952

    • First launch from Cape Canaveral in September of 1952

  • Bomarc A became fully operational in 1959

    • Numerous deployments from Florida to Maine defended U.S. eastern sea board

  • Booster on Bomarc A was source of problems

    • Fuel was too corrosive to store in missile, so fueling took place immediately before launch (increasing time to launch)

    • Fueling process was also quite hazardous, involving three steps (white fuming nitric acid, analine-furfuryl alcohol, and kerosene)

  • New model that utilizes a solid fuel booster

    • Bomarc B became operational in 1961, and featured a safer solid fuel booster and more powerful sustainers

  • Boeing built 700 Bomarc missiles between 1957 and 1964, and Bomarc in active service until 1972

  • Length 46 ft. 9 in, Wingspan 18 ft. 2 in, Speed Mach 2.8, Range 250 miles, Ceiling 65,000 ft, Cost: $ 1,154,000 per shot

  • Propulsion:

    • One Aerojet General LR59-AG-13 liquid rocket

    • Two Marquardt RJ43-MA-3 ramjets

Hyfly ramjet concept
HyFly RAMJET CONCEPT

  • Hypersonic Flight Demonstration Program

  • Cruise Flight Mach Number ~ 6

  • Range 600 nm (1111 km)

HyFly RAMJET CONCEPThttp://www.designation-systems.net/dusrm/app4/hyfly.html

  • HyFly program was initiated in 2002 by DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) and U.S. Navy's ONR (Office of Naval Research) to develop and test a demonstrator for a hypersonic Mach 6+ ramjet-powered cruise missile

  • Prime contractor for HyFly missile is Boeing, Aerojet builds sustainer engine

  • Air-launched from F-15E and accelerated to ramjet ignition speed by solid-propellant rocket booster

  • Engine runs on conventional liquid hydrocarbon fuel (JP-10)

    • Much easier to handle than cryogenic fuels (LH2) used on other hypersonic scramjet vehicles

  • Sustainer engine of HyFly is a dual-combustion ramjet (DCR) (very complex)

    • Two different air inlet systems

      • Operate as a "conventional" ramjet with subsonic combustion

      • Operate at hypersonic speeds as a scramjet

  • First scramjet engine (hybrid or otherwise) to demonstrate operability with LH2 fuel

Ramjet vs scramjet
RAMJET VS. SCRAMJET ‘SHIPWRECK’)

  • Large temp rise associated with deceleration from high speed to M~0.3 for combustion

  • Solution for increased flight speed: decelerate to ‘lower’ supersonic speeds in combustor

  • Combustion very difficult (flame support) in a high speed flow

  • Vehicle cooling requirements become very challenging


X-51 ‘SHIPWRECK’)


Summary
SUMMARY ‘SHIPWRECK’)

  • Ramjet develops no static thrust

  • Relies on ‘ram’ compression of air

    • Requires high speed flight

  • Performance depends on increase in stagnation temperature across burner (combustor)

  • Efficiencies (thermal, propulsive, and overall) increase with increasing flight Mach number

  • Next step: We desire an engine that develops static thrust

    • Put in a device to mechanically compress air (compressor)

    • Put in a device to power compressor (turbine)

  • Solution: Turbojet engine


Interstellar ramjet hydrogen breathing engine
INTERSTELLAR RAMJET: ‘HYDROGEN-BREATHING ENGINE’ ‘SHIPWRECK’)

  • In this concept, interstellar hydrogen is scooped to provide propellant mass

    • Hydrogen is ionized and then collected by an electromagnetic field

  • Onset of ramjet operation is at a velocity of about 4% speed of light

  • Typically, interstellar ramjets are very large systems

  • A ramjet sized for a 45-year manned mission to Alpha Centauri would have a ram intake 650 km in diameter and weigh 3000 metric tons including payload
